Experimental and natural infection of planktonic and benthic copepods by the Asian tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi



Experimental and natural infection of planktonic and benthic copepods by the Asian tapeworm, Bothriocephalus acheilognathi



Proceedings of the Helminthological Society of Washington, 562: 151-155



A variety of copepods from Belews Lake, North Carolina, USA, were individually exposed to 5-10 coracidia of B. acheilognathi. Diacyclops thomasi, Mesocyclops edax and Tropocyclops prasinus were susceptible to infection, whereas Skistodiaptomus pallidus could not be infected experimentally. The benthic cyclopods Eucyclops agilis and Paracyclops fimbriatus poppei could also be infected. All cyclopoids appear to be susceptible to infection regardless of their developmental stage.
